Religious Dynamics in a Sasanian Context
Edited by Geoffrey Herman
Series: Judaism in Context 17
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0250-7
The Sasanian Empire was home to many religious communities. It was also a place of meeting and transformation. The studies in this volume encompass a diverse array of topics concerning these religious communities inhabiting the Sasanian Empire. Some include the Roman East in their deliberations. Most, however, deal with the interaction of one or other religious community based in the Sasanian Empire with the dominant religion of the empire, Zoroastrianism.
